How do businesses identify and reduce Work Disability Risk?

Australian statistics report that 92% of their serious mental health concerns in the workplace are mainly caused by work-related stress. Other countries are not far off, unfortunately.

Problems like mental exhaustion, physical weariness and emotional burnout put employees at risk of what’s called ‘work disability’.

Work disability risk occurs when employees become unable to work due to ongoing illnesses, consistent anxiety or enduring injuries. This can be due to extreme job dissatisfaction and stress, resulting in employees losing the motivation to go to work and perform their roles. As a result, your company suffers from longer-term negative consequences including lost productivity, poor customer service and lower revenue generation.

Every business and employee wants to avoid this outcome. So it’s important to understand work disability risk and how you can mitigate its impact.

5 Reasons Why HR Needs To Invest In Employee Pulse Surveys

Work has been challenging for everyone lately.

In particular, employees are having to bear the responsibility of producing consistent results despite the unprecedented turbulence and recent disruptions.

As part of a company’s HR or Management team, you have to check in on them more frequently to assess:

  • their overall welfare and mental health
  • if they feel sufficiently supported across all aspects of their job and
  • if they have the means to succeed, despite working remotely or under unusual conditions.

Most businesses have been doing this through lengthy surveys. Unfortunately, these tend to not be very effective in resolving employee engagement issues.

To bridge this gap between survey results and employee engagement, more companies are now investing in pulse surveys. Here’s what you need to know about pulse surveys and how they can address your business’ needs.

QWL: The Best Way To Conduct Employee Engagement Surveys

How things be different for your business in the ‘new normal’ of 2020

In the past few weeks, we’ve witnessed the impact of COVID-19 on the global workforce.

An estimated 2.7 billion employees globally have shifted to working remotely due to lockdowns and social distancing measures. There were also unfortunate cases of layoffs because some businesses were forced to close.
